Indian solar power project uses canals to generate renewable energy
The state of Gujarat in western India has come up with a fantastic way to make use of free space to generate green juice. Up ahead, the Chief Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, will inaugurate an innovative project that simply works as a canopy over the Narmada canal. This canopy sports solar panels and works as a full-fledged array! Called the Canal Solar Power Project, the project could very well use the 19,000 km-long network of Narmada canals to its advantage.
Also, the state has recently pulled the veil off a 600-MW solar power project that encompasses 11 districts. Gujarat invests a whopping Rs 2,000 crore an year on renewable energy and has also won investments of up to Rs 9,000 crore on projects like these.
